    OK, overall it's a nice spot. But.. They copied the five leaves burger. I am a little upset..

    Extremely charming and cozy. Perfect date spot. Don't remember all the food, but remember being quite pleased with subtlety of interesting flavors.

    Honestly I keep coming back because of the decor and atmosphere. The food is just average, date cake aside.

    Dark, intimate pub & parlor style restaurant and bar, serving hearty food with a delicate twist. The vibes are chill, and the music is always good and sometimes live. Read more

    Candelit tables, aged wood floor, mechanical fans...this is the sexiest cafe in Brooklyn, hands down.

    The food is great, and its rarely crowded. The kale salad is huge and delicious.

    Love the aesthetic and intimate atmosphere. Feels like time travel. The music playing was really good too. Not loud so you can still have good conversations. Great to bring visiting friends.

    Inside, it feels like the smaller South Williamsburg cousin of Five Leaves. And sweet baby Jesus, that date cake may be the best dessert in all of NYC.

    Crouched under the JMZ train and marked by a rusty bicycle above the door, it’s easy to mistake this odd eatery as an abandoned dive bar for sea captains. Big mistake. Read more

    One of those spots that reminds you why you live where you live. Delicious menu and cozy live music aside, Martin Scorsese directed a Chanel ad here in 2010. You can just picture it.

    Cute sort of French place with live jazzy music. Food is good, service can be better.

    Sit near the door to be close to the band and have a great view of the street under the elevated subway. Great date spot!

    Brie, pear, arugula and honey panini. I can't even breathe.

    You'll be tempted to try the chocolate desserts- but trust me when I say the Date Cake is delectable.

    Really good food and wine selection. Not a lot of space, but that could be a good thing if you want an excuse to get a little closer to your date.

    This is one of the most extraordinary places I've ever been eating at. Fantastic atmosphere, and the food is simple and amazing. It's like lunch at grandma. Also it's very friendly and welcoming!

    Nice atmosphere but don't come hungry - the portions are small

    The baked eggs are pretty killer. So are the grilled donuts — we don't even CARE about that rumor that they're just Entenmann's toasted a Foreman grill.
